(J. F. A. Mail Service)

Two new London synagogues were dedicated today by the Chief Rabbi, Dr. J. H. Hertz. The first was the enlarged synagogue at Golders Green, and the other was the ?ew Bow and Mile End synagogue. The opening ceremony in both cases was performed by Sir Robert Waley-Cohen. Senior Vice-President of the United Synagogue.

In the course of his address at the Golders Green synagogue, Dr. Hertz recalled that when preaching at the original opening of the synagogue he alluded to the kindness and large heartedness of the vicar of St. Albans, Golders Green, who had allowed his church hall to be used as a place of worship by the Jewish congregation of Golders Green. He was glad to learn that the Jews of Golders Green had gained the best respect of their non-Jewish friends in the district, and that a bond of friendship existed among all creeds in that locality.

The new Bow and Mile End synagogue was erected at a cost of $45,000.
